Please give a warm welcome to Laxmi Hariharan, author of The Destiny of Shaitan (#1 Chronicle of the Three). She generously gave away three copies of her debut novel for my 20,000TH Hit Giveaway, and she won an interview during some of the fun on the Facebook event page. If you missed those, shame on you. We had a blast!
When I am not writing I enjoy walking in the woods near my home in London. I lived in a few different countries before moving to London. It’s a well-kept secret that London is one of the greenest cities on this planet, really! You are never more than ten minutes away from a park or a heath or woodlands. Highgate Wood near my home in North London is my all time favourite place to walk. It has trees many centuries old, and I swear they talk to me as I glide between them. I also love growing flowers – jasmine, rose & lavender are my favourite. Walking out on my decking my morning cup of sweetened chai, inhaling the aroma of fresh leaves and the drizzle on the grass is my favourite time of the day.
I loved the trivia questions you provided for our giveaway event page. Give us the scoop on your series and how Indian mythology ties into it.

I always snoop around and find out about people before I interview them. Kinda like looking in their medicine cabinets, I suppose, but not quite so intrusive. I did find that you've given yourself a goal of finishing your second book in nine months. How's it coming along? Are you following any strict outlines or writing routines?
On your email signature, you have a little link that says "About Me" (told ya I snoop), and within it is a picture of a little girl with a beautiful white owl. The caption reads, "I Love Owls". Is that you in the picture, and if so, what do you like about owls?

You've written for various news publications over the years. What's been the most challenging aspect of writing fiction vs. journalism?
Everyone gets a random question when they visit Unwritten. Here's yours: What's your guilty pleasure when it comes to snacking?
Now, Ms. Hariharan, would you be so kind as to share an excerpt of your work?
Thank you so much for being here, Laxmi! I hope you can return and I wish you much success!
